“The Gingered Pear” Smoothie (This is one of my Faves!)

1 or 2 ripe pears (depending on how sweet you like it :)

1/2 lemon (seeds and rind removed. Or if  lemon is organic leave a bit of the peel for  zest!)

1 inch nub or “nickle” of ginger

BIG handful of kale, chard or spinach (stems removed)

Shake of Cinnamon

Blend all and enjoy. This is SO refreshing, spicy-sweet and yummy..give it a try!

“The Strawberry Popeye” Smoothie

1 cup of strawberries (ripe or frozen)

2 medium bananas

3 Big handfuls of spinach

Blend all (can add a bit of ice if using fresh strawberries) and revel in deliciousness. Easy as “1, 2, 3!”   Serves 2.

“The Kaleberry” Smoothie

1 cup blueberries (frozen or fresh)

1 ripe fuji apple, pear or mango

5 leaves of kale (remove the “spine” unless you enjoy its bitterness)

Juice of one lime

1 stalk celery

1 cup filtered water

Chop and blend all then enjoy this surprisingly tasty treat!

“Peachy Green” Smoothie

1 large ripe peach or nectarine

1 cup of strawberries-(fresh or defrosted frozen)

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1 big handful of baby romaine greens

Chop peach and romaine, blend,  then add strawberries and lemon, and blend a bit more.

Sweet, nutritious and energizing!

“Savory Creamy Tomato Soup!”

3-5 ripe plum tomatoes or pint of cherry tomatoes

1/2 cup sundried tomatoes

1 ripe Hass avocado

1/2 red bell pepper

2-3 large handfuls of spinach

3-4 sprigs of basil

5-6 pitted black olives

Dash of cayenne pepper

Blend all except the olives, bell pepper, and 2 tomatoes. Start with the tomatoes, add in the avocado, spinach and then basil in that order. You will have a rich, creamy veggie soup at this stage. Next, chop and add the olives, 2 tomatoes, bell pepper, and if needed, more cayenne and perhaps a pinch of sea salt to flavor.

This is a very hearty, satisfying, savory soup, and no cooking required!

Also experiment with adding other veggies or herbs in – perhaps a smidge of green scallion, dill or coriander to taste. Try some toasted nori seaweed for a sublime, super easy and nutritious meal on the go!

Here’s to Your Radiant Health!
